"Aus­tralian com­pa­nies were well rep­re­sented with size­able stands"

Motor (Australia) - - IN PICS -

1: RE­VERSE EN­GI­NEER­ING

While we poke fun at Holden own­ers who cover their Com­modores in Chevy bowtie em­blems the op­po­site is true in the USA, with Chevy SS and Pon­tiac G8 own­ers rac­ing to put as much Holden or HSV gear on their cars as pos­si­ble.

2: CRAZY GOLF

Forged wheels, an eye-pop­ping colour and graph­ics combo, wide bodykit and airbag sus­pen­sion on a wa­ter-cooled Volk­swa­gen. Yep, you’re in a car show in Amer­ica!

MAIN: BLOCK IN THE HOUSE

Ken Block had his all-wheel-drive V8 wide­body WRC-in­spired Mus­tang called the “Hoon­i­corn” on show, sport­ing a new pair of tur­bocharg­ers pok­ing through the bon­net. The DC shoe mogul and Ford per­son­al­ity has al­most made a ca­reer out of mak­ing videos of slid­ing his over­pow­ered all-paw cars around cities and in­dus­trial lo­ca­tions, but he teased a new video of him tear­ing up the Pikes Peak Hill Climb at SEMA!
